Graeme Obree joined a cycling club at the age of 15 and used to ride in jeans and a jacket. He quickly progressed from just riding across the countryside to pursuing racing seriously and became Scottish junior champion in 1983. His innovative training approach took him to the top of world cycling, twice breaking the world hour record – a story picked up in his Hollywood biopic The Flying Scotsman. The Obree Way is a training guide that side-steps conventional wisdom and strips cycling back to its elements, always asking the question: ‘What actually improves my race time?’ Written in a conversational style, the book explains Graeme Obree’s radical insights into technique, training, psychology and diet, and the clear logic behind them. He believes that resting is key to training, that you can pedal, stretch and breathe more effectively and that, if you really want it, you can find the will and intensity to improve.
